Dakota Johnson has been photographed out and about lately, giving us a little insight into what her life is like when she's not filming. Looking at these candid shots shows us a strong theme. 

Dakota always looks amazing. It doesn't matter if she's walking through the airport after a long flight or walking her dog, Dakota is flawless in jeans and T-shirts and is almost always wearing sunglasses. We love her style and are filled with fashion inspiration even when checking her out when she's not on the red carpet. Here are 20 fabulous candids of our Ana Steele.
